    Abridge is a smartphone app that allows you to record your appointments, after you ask permission from everyone in the room, to help you remember everything your doctor said. Check out this review by a young adult : http://bit.ly/2YcD1p7

    Abridge helps you remember your doctor’s advice and make the most of your next doctor’s appointment. The app creates an index of the medical parts of your conversations so you can review and relisten to them later on. Abridge was created by doctors, patients, and caregivers to help you feel supported during all your medical conversations and health visits -- even if you’re going alone.

    With Abridge you can:

    Tap the big button to start securely recording any health conversation, whether at home or in the clinic. Stay present, and get peace of mind that you’ll be able to revisit follow-up instructions or other details later.

    Remind yourself of any key points of care -- from options and medications, to details that may be good for future reference. Keep track of your health conversations in one convenient place.

    Relay what the doctor said to family or friends, and help them stay on the same page. With Abridge, they can hear what happened firsthand, so you don’t have to remember all the details or repeat the same information again and again. You decide what you want to share, and with whom.

    With a better understanding of your doctor’s recommendations, you can make decisions to improve your health.
